                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIYTYOLE ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory 
waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week FOOD FIGHT went 0-0-0 to move 
up 4 in the rankings.  STUPOR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and was awarded 6 points in recognition.  
This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail STUPOR, Duelmaster of 
NIYTYOLE ISLAND!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIYTYOLE ISLAND "art" is a word 
that has long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  BLOW OFF CLASS! has sworn to take up religion upon 
living to tell of his recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  
Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a 
dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  
a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Flying Dragons -- Welcome back to Niytyole Island!  MILCHAMAH has long since been 
removed from DM 33.  My current stable known as CASINO HAMMERZ went inactive after 
achieving 100 Wins due to a negative account balance.  I am living in the Middle East 
in the State of Qatar and working as a Publication Editor for an American curriculum 
school [not run by Americans!]  By January I will have several of my HAMMERZ stables 
reactivated in select Slow Arenas; as it takes Snail Mail about 3 weeks to deliver my 
DM/D2 Newsletters and the Bank Drafts I will be sending to reactivate my stables and 
remove the negative account balance.  Alas, it may be March before my CASINO HAMMERZ 
will be activated, because I must make sure enough money is in my account to cover 
the Gift Certificat Prizes for the Madness and Death Fest contests in DM 28 and DM 59 
respectively.  Then during the summer months I may be forced to deactivate some 
stables [to avoid another negative account balance causing all my stables to be 
deactivated!] before I am able to reactivate them in October or November when my 
salary for the next school year begins arriving and I am able to send Bank Drafts for 
my RSI account.  Meanwhile, I will check in from time to time via the Internet and 
read the DM 33 Newsletters to see if you remain active! Looking forward to crossing 
blades again in DM 33 in 2005 sometime! -- Hammer

22 October 2004
                         Youngblood's Three and Out Contest

I would like to take this time to announce and invite all managers to compete in what
I think will be an awesome contest.  If you haven't ever TC'd at a tourney before,
here is your chance.  The contest will start Wednesday, December 1, 2004, but a
chance will be given November 17 to dark arena, only, any warrior that you do not see
fit to run in the contest.  So now that I have your attention, here are the rules
(like you didn't know they were coming sooner or later).

 1.  Any manager participating can enter one team, only.
 2.  No sandbagging whatsoever.  (I will keep up with it, every turn.)
 3.  No teams or warriors will be allowed to run after contest starts.
 4.  All warriors will run until they lose three times, after three losses they are
     eliminated.
 5.  If a warrior sits out a turn, they are accounted with a loss in the contest.
     This is to keep warriors with winning records from sitting out until the end of
     the contest.
 6.  If a warrior is killed during the contest, the replacement cannot enter the
     contest.
 7.  If a warrior is killed, bloodfeuding is allowed, but only by a warrior that is
     active in the contest.
 8.  If a warrior is run after being eliminated, the manager is disqualified from the
     contest, no questions asked.
 9.  Challenges are legal, up or down.
10.  Contest will keep going until 1 warrior is left without three losses, and that
     warrior, of course, is accounted the winner.
11.  All managers participating will be asked to purchase a rollup certificate, to be
     awarded to the winners of the contest.

                                    <<<PRIZES>>>

     As I have already said, and according to participation, rollups will be awarded
to the first and second place managers.  So the majority and minority of the rollups
will be determined when all are accumulated.
     Contest Champion--2 Faves prizes, and majority of rollup certificates
     Contest Runner-up--1 Faves prize, and minority of rollup certificates
     So once again I invite all managers old and new to participate in what should be
a fierce and challenging contest.  <<<REMEMBER, FIRST OFFICIAL TURN OF THE CONTEST IS
DECEMBER THE FIRST, AND AS I SAID BEFORE, THE TURN BEFORE (NOVEMBER 17TH) YOU MAY
DARK ARENA CHALLENGE ONLY!!!  ANY WARRIOR WITH ANY FE (FIGHT EXPERIENCE) WHEN THE
CONTEST STARTS WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE CONTEST.
